    Default New game: iEmpire

    I've finished the first cut at a port of Classic Empire to the iPhone. It can be downloaded at:

    http://ixionstudios.com/files/iEmpire.zip

    Unzipped it's about a meg and a half.

    This is currently a straight port of the VMS version of empire from way WAY back, so some of the features from the more modern versions aren't included.

    It's chock-full of "programmer art". Decent artwork takes me far too long to do, so I didn't bother If someone wants to contribute a decent tile set, I'll happily include it in the next cut. The base images are 64x64.

    Notes:

    The + and - buttons zoom in and out.

    Clicking on a blank part of the map will zoom the view back to the currently selected unit.

    The unit types in the city production screen are ( in order ):
    *Army *Fighter *Patrol boat
    *Destroyer *Submarine *Troop Transport
    *Carrier *Battleship *Satellite

    Click the "..." button for more options when moving units. Currently there are only two more options - Move randomly, and explore map. More to come ( like wait for transport, go to nearest city, land fighter, wait to be loaded ).

    If you want to ssh into the phone while you're playing, you can view the game log in /tmp/empire_debug.txt

    There's no sound yet.

    There's no feedback for combat / city capture. You only see the results.

    I'd like to hear about any bugs / suggestions.

    Here is an example of my stuff.
    I didn't play Empire, so I don't know anything about it.
    Tell me what you need and I'll try to do it, if I have enough free time.
    Please be very descriptive.
